Planning a family walk together%3f%3f   As you walk with your child(ren) assign each person the task of picking up leaves while gathering as many different types as possible.  Upon returning home, work with your child(ren) on sorting out the leaves based on their different characteristics such as size, color, shape, etc.  After sorting the leaves discuss the total number found of each species and why they think a particular leaf is more abundant than another.  You could also have your child(ren) make a pattern with the leaves collected.  This activity could very easily lead into a study of native trees in your region.
